Adaptive Reuse in Houston, TX at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Meyerland Area

Building History

It was 1872 when Henry Henke set off hopeful from his hometown of New Orleans, to find a town sutiable to establish a new grocery store. He found a great need and seized the opportunity to introduce a market in Houston, Texas. The stores started out modestly with a handful of employees. One such employee, Camille G. Pillot, went from being Mr. Henke's bookkeeper to official business partner in 1885. By 1925, they had two successful locations in downtown and midtown Houston. In 1955, The Kroger Company acquired the chain and by 1956 they had expanded the grocery chain to 27 stores in the U.S. Finally, in 1966, Kroger rolled out an expansion in the Houston area that included phasing out the Henke & Pillot name as part of a rebranding. The Henke & Pillot grocery market building was built in 1969 and U-Haul acquired the iconic building in 1979.
